Computes relaxation (SOR, Gauss-Seidel) sweeps.


#include "petscmat.h" 
PetscErrorCode MatSOR(Mat mat, Vec b, PetscReal omega, MatSORType flag, PetscReal shift, PetscInt its, PetscInt lits, Vec x)

Neighbor-wise Collective

Input Parameters#

  • mat - the matrix

  • b - the right hand side

  • omega - the relaxation factor

  • flag - flag indicating the type of SOR (see below)

  • shift - diagonal shift

  • its - the number of iterations

  • lits - the number of local iterations

Output Parameter#

SOR Flags#


SOR_LOCAL_FORWARD_SWEEP, SOR_LOCAL_BACKWARD_SWEEP, and SOR_LOCAL_SYMMETRIC_SWEEP perform separate independent smoothings on each processor.

Application programmers will not generally use MatSOR() directly, but instead will employ the KSP/PC interface.

For MATBAIJ, MATSBAIJ, and MATAIJ matrices with Inodes this does a block SOR smoothing, otherwise it does a pointwise smoothing

Most users should employ the KSP interface for linear solvers instead of working directly with matrix algebra routines such as this. See, e.g., KSPCreate().

Vectors x and b CANNOT be the same

The flags are implemented as bitwise inclusive or operations. For example, use (SOR_ZERO_INITIAL_GUESS | SOR_SYMMETRIC_SWEEP) to specify a zero initial guess for SSOR.

Developer Note#

We should add block SOR support for MATAIJ matrices with block size set to great than one and no inodes
